Reviews of Espresso Royale

Well this is a hard core coffee scent for the first 10 minutes or so then turns into an amazing sweet coffee/hazelnut juice that I find to be well worth the purchase price. This does start off with A LOT of coffee... but within the background you can smell the middle and base notes coming along. I find this to be a complete winner and if you are a fan of coffee/gourmand scents you should try. Longevity is BEASTLY especially on clothing. Enjoy!

Sebastiane Espresso Royale is the only fragrance I've tried from the line, mainly due to its reputation is a good coffee scent. It is certainly bold and smells primarily of coffee. The supporting notes are difficult to decipher. It's not significantly sweet (as with vanilla) or boozy (as with rum) but rather mainly coffee. It's not as boozy as Sensei by Piotr Czarnecki, not as sweet as Bond No. 9 New Haarlem, and not as patchouli-laden as Thierry Mugler Pure Coffee. Rather, it's mainly a sharp coffee smell, like an espresso itself, mixed with slightly elements of cocoa. Cocoa is the sweetness that I get out of it. In that respect, the coffee/rum/cocoa combination yields a fair likening to Tiramisu, though certainly its incarnation is less sweet than the dessert item itself.

Projection and longevity are strong even for an EDP, so at $85 (plus shipping) for 60ml on Indiescents (a site with which I am not very familiar), it seems like a reasonable deal. This is certainly powerful enough that it should probably be reserved for cold weather situations exclusively.

I'd be remiss not to compare this to another purported top coffee-dominant scent, Barista by Legendary Fragrances, which I liked very much. Espresso Royale is definitely overall stronger in terms of concentration and projection, and evokes a blacker, more acidic, perhaps even more burnt coffee smell. In terms of blend, I give the edge to Barista slightly. In terms of boldness, Espresso Royale is the clear winner, though.

A great try and deserving of attention especially by coffee lovers.

The coffee note hits you over the head violently for the first five minutes, and to my nose is not quite true.
The fade into rum and caramel is better, but very sweet and cloying. Disappointed, I was hoping for something more sophisticated.

Another horrible fragrance from Sebastiane that claims to smell of coffee but doesn't. For a better coffee fragrance, try Sensei, Pure Coffee, or just rub burnt cheap coffee grounds on your skin, because that's what this smells like.

This one is dominated by the coffee note with the other notes creating the foundation upon which it rests. Very nice fragrance but very potent. This is my first full wearing and 3-4 spritzes are a couple too many.
